This past weekend I needed to get out of dodge for a bit, so a friend and I went drove down to the state border where there are outlet malls, antique stores, and a whole lotta nothing. We spent a good chunk of time in one of the antique stores. Imagine my joy when, near the end of our puttering around, I saw this maneki-neko!
I’ve long looked for a maneki-neko and never found one *on my own* that I’ve liked. A dear friend found an awesome pair that I love; I keep one in my living room and one at work. Yet I’ve never found one–on my own–that really beckoned to me (pun intended) until this past weekend. The price was right, so I brought him home and now he watches over me and the furkids while we sleep.
Hopefully he’ll bring me some good luck, too! 🙂
